Waveland Condo Proposal Withdrawn

A proposed condominium development in Waveland is now officially dead. Tuesday night, the Waveland Board of Aldermen unanimously voted to accept a recommendation to deny Developer Julie Rosson a zoning change in the Sundance Subdivision.

The change from single family residential to multi-family would have allowed Rosson to help a New Orleans developer build 240 low rise condominiums off Sears Avenue.

The vote came despite Rosson's decision to withdraw her application for the project.

"And even though we believe that this type of development would be advantageous to the area, we feel it is in the best interest of the community to explore other options," Waveland Developer Julie Rosson said.

Rosson's announcement drew loud applause from the audience. Most were concerned that the infrastructure in the area could not support a large condo project.
